Shamrock Rovers’ Clarke aiming for cross-channel return

Shamrock Rovers winger Trevor Clarke is aiming to return to England in the future, despite returning from Middlesbrough to the League of Ireland in 2015.

The teenager was named as the PFAI Young Player of the Year last season following a breakout campaign at Shamrock Rovers, but revealed he is determined to win a second opportunity to impress cross-channel.

“It’s always in your mind that you want to get back away,” Clarke told The42.

“Obviously, I’ve been over there before and come home. Then you look at someone like Sean Maguire, who returned from England and ripped it up at Cork City. That earned him another chance to go back and he’s doing the same over there now.

“You do think about it, but I’m only 19. I could go over at 23 or 24, realistically, but I’d probably be looking to do it at around 21. It takes time and you need to gain the experience. If I stay here at the club that I’m at now, Rovers, for a couple of years — with the players that I’m around, the manager and the staff — there is no better club to be at. This is where I want to be.”
